The Tanmay Bhat spoof in the name of comedy is utterly distasteful and disrespectful. It is not about freedom of expression. It is not about whether this video will threaten national security. But one thing is sure: it will indeed go on to hurt the moral fabric of our country.

The fabric which binds us - the one that shapes our guiding values.

Respect for elders, putting morals above looks, hard work, honesty - these are some of the things parents teach us. And we, in turn, pass those values to our children. What we see here in the name of comedy goes against those very values.

It is one thing to mimic mannerisms and another to comment on looks and age. She is respected as Saraswati Maa. This God stature has no shortcuts. She has earned it. The least we can do is respect that.
